The problem is the Spam accouts that actually appear when they post into random topics, thus eliminating being identified by having 0posts. they also seem to just signup, spam, then disappear again.

Looks like another one showed up this morning, what's the point in them? They aren't even trying to make us buy things, steal our bank account details or download viruses onto our computers.
Ahh Cammerz has typed himself into oblivion! :o Someone get him back xD

Narric, if you see a suspected bot then you can add them to the "Kroot-bot" group - it should then make them obvious in the user list.

They could potentially start up en-mass I suppose later on.

In a couple of weeks I have some time off so will look at rebuilding the code base to include some more anti-spam mods then. :)

A couple more just turned up :P

Out of curiosity, how many active moderators do we have that can deal with them? Is it just you two?

That would be expensive. :P

Though we could find an amusing selection of themed domain names.

Yeah, just Sorck and I. I believe a few of the old guard still have priviledges, but they're often having a life so don't return.

The solution is to stop them registering in the first place, as that would save any active moderators the work of having to ban/delete them and delete their posts.  That's why I suggested adding some of the anti-spam mods SMF offers.

I'll boot the known spammers in the Kroot-bot group for the time being. Better to do them in lots rather than one at a time :P

Not sure if this "Leayhuiz" account is genuine. Saw a nonsensical reply to a thread from 2 years ago. But couldn't check the other posts due to "high server load" somehow.

Their posts have been deleted and a standardized message sent to them. If they're a genuine person, they'll either decide to leave becuase I deleted their posts, or they'll start fresh correctly.
If they're a bot, this'll be the last we hear of them :P
